“Then, all you have to do is say, ‘Hey Google, play New Music Daily playlist’, or ‘Hey Google, play Rap Life playlist’,” said Google.

Apple Music will also work with Google’s multi-room audio feature. If you have more than one compatible smart speaker or display, you can use the multi-room control feature in the Google Home app or on a Nest smart display to dynamically move your music from one device to the other, and even play music on all of the devices in your home by saying, “Hey Google, play music on all my speakers”.

Google is rolling out support for Apple Music starting in the US, UK, France, Germany and Japan first. And support for Apple Music arrives alongside Spotify, Pandora, YouTube Music and Deezer on the Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers.
